“Large, well-maintained temple”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

This large Jain temple stands in a compound with a tall sandstone "Victory Tower" (victory over the senses) which is recently built.
The temple itself has many beautiful stone carvings. Little towers around the walls are being rebuilt because they have become blackened by the monsoon and possibly pollution. No photography is allowed inside, but good views may be had by climbing up stairs to the roof. Beware - there is no wall or railings around this, but it is relatively flat, so not too vertiginous.

“Outstanding carvings”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

It is a beautiful temple with a unique architecture and incredible carvings.
I got the feeling that foreigners are not welcome! The people who work there are very rude.
Unfortunately pictures are not allowed.

“Jain art and architecture”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

A recommended spot for photography of historical art and architecture, the elaborate carvings of figures on the walls of the shrine are noteworthy. There is also a beautiful stone tower at the entrance courtyard, which resembles like the Victory Tower of Chittor.
I was fortunate to be guided around by Jain devotees volunteering at the temple and also got to witness a traditional Jain wedding ceremony in the main shrine.

“Beautiful carving all around”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

I love temples and the whole architectures associated with them and out of all the ones I have seen this one definitely stands out with its intricate detailing and carvings. Sadly the place does not allow you to take pictures which is quite common with most of the temples and other religious place around the country but otherwise the place has some amazing views and it is great to walk around the place while watching all these work of art

“Awesome Architecture and workmanship”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

We aren't Jains by religion but went to visit this temple as we had heard so much about it. It is a very serene temple with some awesome architecture. It is a very peaceful place where you feel really calm and relaxed.

It would've been even nicer if we had visited the place with some Jain friends, so that we could have appreciated the temple all the more.
